A surrogate mother has appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court in a battle to gain custody of triplets she carried by gestational surrogacy.
The mother, Melissa Cook, 49, of Woodland Hills, Calif., carried three babies for a single father, Chester Shannon Moore Jr., 51.
Moore, a postal worker, lives in his elderly parents’ basement in Mableton, Ga. The arrangement was made through a surrogacy agency.
Cook says Moore is incapable of caring for the three baby boys, now 18 months old.
